This Christmas season, let the atheists among us recognize that the West remains eternally indebted to Christianity. If there were no Christianity, there would be no natural law, natural rights, human rights, or our traditional moral ideals — for without the theological gestalt supplied by Christianity, these ideals are reduced to arbitrary human inventions.
Suppose you saw a building on fire. Would you seek counsel from the arsonist who set it ablaze for advice on how to put it out? You say, "Williams, you'd have to be a lunatic to do that!" But that's precisely what we've done: turned to the people who created our fiscal crisis to fix it. I have never read a better account of our doing just that than in John A. Allison's new book, The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure.
If the “fiscal cliff” controversy isn’t enough to convince you this government is one big fraud, what will it take? The budget mess was delivered to us by the same people who every step of the way claimed to be acting in our best interest. Let that sink in. Every president and every member of Congress assured us that their fiscal policies would produce prosperity and employment.
The issue of so-called same-sex "marriage” will soon come before the Supreme Court. I am no betting man, but if I were, I would gamble every dime to my name that before long, “gay marriage” will be the law of the land. I would further bet that those right-leaning politicians and their allies within the alternative media who have insisted upon preserving the heterosexual character of marriage will succumb to a deafening silence not long after that.
President Obama says he wants more jobs, a “top priority,” plus a growing small business sector, the section of the economy that creates the majority of new jobs, and more income redistributed from the “top 2 percent” to the government.
Attempting to show that those incompatible positions aren’t incompatible, Mr. Obama injected the same misleading statement into his news conference at four different points.
Let me see if I have this right. Earlier this year, while campaigning for re-election, Barack Obama said he wanted to raise taxes $800 billion on everyone making more than $250,000 a year. Republicans were virtually unanimous in shouting, “No way!”
Then what happened when the Spender in Chief wins the White House for another four years? He promptly doubled down. Now, he says he wants $1.6 trillion in new taxes over the next 10 years. And our “don’t call my bluff” President made it abundantly clear that he’ll play hardball to get it.
Students at Capital High School (CHS) in Charleston, West Virginia, have been regularly forced to stand during the playing of a song known as “The Black National Anthem.”
The song, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” was played in the morning right after the American national anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance, and students were forced to stand for all three.
The way reading is taught in public schools has consequences affecting millions of young Americans. It creates social problems on such a huge scale, that the nation is hardly able to deal with them. Indeed, there was no such condition as functional illiteracy until American educators invented it. Patriotic, conservative Americans must organize a movement to teach the illiterates to read, and prevent the schools from creating more illiterates.
